exploring microclimatic design
la plata, buenos aires, argentina 
The final project of the CONSTRUCTION[s] studio demanded a critical approach to the concept of sustainability. While considering the social, economic and environmental components of what it means to be sustainable, we were asked to reinterpret an iconic house, in this case, Le Corbusier’s Casa Curutchet in Argentina. My project focused on creating a series of microclimates within the building to mitigate seasonal temperature variations and decrease energy dependence along with creating aesthetically sensitive additions to the existing structure in order to create a higher density dwelling.
